This 775LGA mainboard from Gigabyte offers a multitude of I/O and integrated fuctions for the power-users and gamers. It features a special power system which utilizes solid capacitors for maximum reliability under extreme loads. The chipset and voltage regulators are cooled passively, so the board is 100% silent under any condition. Overclocking capabilities on this board are the best in its class, providing a multitude of automatic and manual configurations for any level of user expertise. Standard features include: 2x PCI-e x16 slots, dual sata-raid controllers (intel and gigabyte), integrated hd-audio solution, and gigabit lan.
The 965P-DQ6 uses the P965 chipset that supports both the Intel Core 2 Duo and Intel Pentium D processors. With a good cooling setup, fast memory, and the proper BIOS settings (Vcore, memory timing, multiplier), this board possesses a huge overclocking potential. It's reasonable to achieve a 50% overclock on its stock 266 MHz FSB (1066 MHz data bandwidth).
